Description of problem:
I have trying to get the Yamaha OPL3-SAx soundcard to detect on my
Tecra 8000 with Fedora Core 2.
Fedora is crap on old hardware such as Tecra 8000. This is driving me
Spending hours trying to get a stupid sound card to work.
mY kernel is 2.6.5-1.358 and i downloaded the next one up(can't
remember exact no).
My sound card is on irq 5 in the bios.
Fedora can't detect it through lspci:

I have tried ALSA but i read some forum to say i don't need it and it
does not work when i try to insert into the kernel:
modprobe snd-opl3sa2;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-
i tried to insert the soundcard int the modprobe.conf:
alias eth0 3c589_cs
alias usb-controller uhci-hcd
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-opl3sa2
# module options should go here
# OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
I have a pcmcia network and usb mouse that was irq confilcting but i
fixed it by adding 'pci=bios' and 'acpi=noirq'; to the grub.
I have tried changing the IRQ's of the soundcard and it did not work.
Has anyone worked out how to get yahama sound card to detect?
This is *probably* a driver issue. Non-PNP isa cards aren't
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
